Australian Police Got a New Porsche 911
Law officers of the world, prepare to be jealous. Australia’s New South Wales (NSW) Police Department is just like any other local constabulary. They protect and serve, catch criminals, and oh yeah – they just got a 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera. In a competition sponsored by Porsche Cars Australia, the NSW boys in blue were granted a brand new 911 and called upon international students in the area to help design the graphics of their new cruiser. Iranian student Sam Nejat took the prize for his finely penned Porsche police livery. PHOTOS: Check out the latest shots of the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3
For his design efforts, Nejat, 31, will be presented with an award and will also have the vehicle visit his University of Western Sydney campus for a day. Though, it likely won’t be dishing out speeding tickets or engaging in PIT maneuvers.
Rather, the police-spec Porsche will be used by NSW officers as a community engagement vehicle, which means it’ll attend charity fundraisers, schools, youth programs, and other community events to “promote positive interactions between police and the community.”
